a little more involved than that.
There are different support brackets for the fenders. The LS1 and LT1 radiators sit at different heights (LS1 more upright, hence the taller nose profile)

Why not just buy a older gen? My car is currently for sale. Family problems force me to sell it.

I have a later 4th gen in good shape, prefer keeping the ls1 and having a 5+ year newer car.
